Submissions to the 2017 Creative Arts Anthology

Since 2008, the English Department has published its annual Creative Arts Anthology, bringing together the creative work of contributors from the university, and the Reading creative scene. This year’s Anthology, the tenth edition to date, is no different, and we’re now looking for submissions.

Creative arts anthology 2017

Despite what you might think, submission isn’t just open to the English Department! Students and staff of any subject are welcome to submit work, and we’re also looking for entries from local talent too.

Entries can take a variety of forms. Past editions have included written poetry and prose, as well

as visual art in the form of photography, drawings, and paintings. There is no limit on the number of works one author or artist may submit, but please be aware that as space in the final publication is limited, we will not be able to publish all entries. We also ask that submissions aren’t too long, to allow for more work to be featured, but if you’re unsure about an entry you have in mind, please get in touch via our Facebook ( or Twitter


All submissions should be sent to, accompanied by brief biographical note to be used should your work be selected. Written entries should be in the form of a Word document, while visual entries should be Jpeg’s (ideally, please submit in publishable quality in the first instance, otherwise it will be harder to judge the work for publication.)

The deadline for submissions is Monday 9 January 2017. If you have any questions, let us know!
